Description

Due to ongoing property management issues, Steele cannot be considered a destination area for climbing.

The Southeastern Climbers Coalition (SCC) purchased a small section of Steele’s extensive cliffline in 2009; the bulk of Steele is under private ownership and off-limits to climbing. Deteriorating relations between the SCC and the neighboring property owners, combined with poor documentation of the small number of routes that are actually legal to climb, have made this an area that’s less desirable than it once was.

Getting There

Refer to the SCC site or Dixie Cragger's Atlas for directions.

Had a run in with the landowner. Turns out if you're not a jerk, he's a nice guy. A bit crusty but people say the same about me :) Apr 27, 2017
